Will be flying Delta flight 541 tomorrow, lga to lax with a stop over in ATL, no equiptment change required. Question is, time between flights is 1 hr and 10 min. are passengers who are traveling through to LAX allowed off the plane for reboarding at the appropriate time? I'd much prefer to get off plane and stretch legs and find a bar or something as opposed to staying on the plane.

thanks in advanced for your posts and answers

I did STL-RDU on UA and US- On UA i had to get off in ORD and on US i had to get off in CLT. I dont think I could have stayed on if I wanted to...They didnt give me the impression that I could...

I flew B6 from IAD-LGB-OAK, and was allowed to remain on the aircraft as they cleaned it in Long Beach. I am not sure they would have allowed me to exit the aircraft. But I think depending on the circumstances they may require that you exit the aircraft. Maybe if one of the stops is that airline's hub. Just a hunch.

I flew STL-ORD-IAD (I think) in early 2001 with no equipment change and when we stopped at ORD they told us we could either leave and come back for re-boarding or just stay on the plane. This was pre-9/11 and things might have changed since, but I know they used to allow you to stay on the plane or least on UA they did. But to answer the question, yes you should be able to get off the plane.

Flew DL GSO-ATL-PHX under the same flight number, same plane service. Upon landing in ATL, I was given the option of staying or going into the terminal - decided to go into the terminal, and they just scanned my boarding pass again to reboard the plane. I was allowed to keep my bag in the overhead bin during the layover though, so I just took my briefcase with me and grabbed some food in the A Food Court.

If the crew is sticking with the plane you should have a choice. If they are changing crews, you will have to get off.

No things have not changed. I flew STL-ORD-SAN in May same plane and they told us the same thing. You could either stay on the plane or you could get off and reboard when they began the boarding process for the ORD passengers.

Yep - that's usually the deciding factor. OR, if you're really early and the cabin crew would like to get off and stretch their legs as well (they have to remain on board with passengers), you'll be asked to deplane.

One time, on the MDW stop of a 1-stop ATA flight DCA-MDW-SFO, the crew let me have a brief cockpit tour while the cabin was being cleaned for the next leg. They even let one of my classmates snap a picture of me in the pilot's seat! This seemed like a much better use of my time than either sitting in my assigned seat or wandering through the terminal (both of which were also options in this case).

That's not necessarily the case. I fly SEA-ANC-FAI and the reverse on Alaska often (not much choice not to) and many times the crew changes without making the passengers deplane. The new cabin crew comes onboard after the passengers who want to deplane leave, and then the old crew leaves.

Support Airliners.net - become a First Class Member!

I flew BOI-SLC-EWR 2 years back, and eventhough the crew changed, I (the only passenger continuing to EWR) was given the choice of staying or getting off. I decided to get off.

Great thing is, when we reboarded, the order was First Class, reboarding passengers, then Frequent Fliers and then regular passangers....

I often fly one-stops on WN. They ask you to remain on the plane since the station stop is very short.
